DORIS FULLER STUDYING AT EASTERN NEW MEXICO UNIVERSITY

I was always very keen to learn Forensic biology. I had done a lot of research and then applied to 4 universities. After securing a good GPA, I got selected at the Eastern New Mexico University. Along with the application form, I submitted my various personal documents.


Course Curriculum - 

While studying I am getting plenty of opportunities for hands-on learning. Here I am also getting a chance to design and conduct my own empirical research project with the help and supervision of our faculty. A wide range of laboratory methods and the ways of using the instruments are also included in the curriculum.
